AP or Advanced Placement is a program run by the College Board (the makers of the SAT) that allows students to take courses at their high school, which can earn them college credit and/or qualify them for more advanced classes when they begin college. AP courses are designed to give students the experience of an intro-level college class while still in high school. Students can receive college credit for the class if they pass their AP exam.
Our students’ achievements speak volumes about the rigor of our college preparatory curriculum, the skills, and depth of knowledge of our teachers, and the hard work and dedication of our students. We are incredibly proud of our 2019 AP results and look forward to challenging our students to continue to achieve higher results during the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year.
